Travis LeDoyt is fast becoming one of America's most convincing Elvis tribute acts to ever grace the stage. Travis flawlessly captures the essence of Elvis in his prime, specializing in the young years of 1954-1962. His dance moves are spot-on. Travis was featured in the NY Times as the 'World's Best Young Elvis". He is backed by a fine band of bass, guitar and drums. The reincarnation witnessed through this dynamic show is truly spectacular. For those who never saw the King in concert, this is the next best thing.
The acoustic jazz ensemble, Rhythm Future Quartet has a straightforward agenda: to keep the spirit of Gypsy jazz alive and expanding in today’s musical universe. The virtuosic foursome, named for a Django Reinhardt tune, offers up a newly minted sound, influenced by the classic Hot Club of France, yet wholly contemporary. Led by violinist Jason Anick and guitarist Olli Soikkeli, the quartet performs dynamic and lyrical arrangements of both Gypsy jazz standards and original compositions that draw upon diverse international rhythms and musical idioms. With Max O’Rourke on second guitar and Greg Loughman on bass, Rhythm Future is dedicated to expanding the boundaries of a vital musical genre.
Russian Quattro is a brilliant quartet of 2 violins and 2 cellos. This unique ensemble of 4 superb musicians from Russia thrills audiences with their performance of non-traditional "between the genres" compositions. Their widely varied program mixes works by Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Dvorak with those of Gershwin, Brubeck and Joplin. Russian Quattro presents a lovely evening of fine music and entertainment.

These three talented young artists will take you for a stroll down memory lane. A Band Called Honalee is a modern-day folk trio inspired by the music and legacy of Peter, Paul and Mary. Musically accomplished, interactive and energetic, they present a show that allows audiences to experience this timeless music live onstage once again. They will invite the audience to sing along with such familiar tunes as "Puff the Magic Dragon", "This Land is Your Land" and "Blowin' in the Wind"' and will add a medley of Mamas & Papas tunes as well.
Three talented guys wield 30 instruments and combine their individual virtuosity to form a raucous production featuring comedy, skits and audience participation. New Odyssey plays many familiar oldies, and it is family friendly and very energetic. Their comedic stunts take their performance far beyond the basics of a more traditional concert. Classic rock, country, novelty and specialty arrangements are the calling card of this unique act. A fund show for the whole family!
